It was on our guide book so we went with no question. The room we booked in advance was not available so we had an other room, full of mold... The manager was antipathetic, not a word for us, not a smile, even though we booked a 5 days trek with guide at the hotel. We switched hotel when we... More

Wonderful guesthouse with peaceful Garden. The owners are very helpful and always triying their Best to make your stay comfortable. Ask for advice if you need and feel welcome. It is very different to the Standard Hotelrooms. If you like this more you are wrong here

Stayed here for a couple of days and really enjoyed our time. They have a lovely garden to relax in and , if clear weather, you can have breakfast on the rooftop and get some views of the mountains. Rooms are economical and we had lots of hot water! Located on a quiet street it was easy to sleep in.

I stayed in the deluxe room, nice for Nepal - it is typical of the standards here. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the garden is perfect to relax in with Wifi available only here (not in rooms). Lakeside itself is very touristy, it's hard to find peace of mind as it is busy in peak season and many... More

Location is perfect with easy walk to everything you could need. Garden is also very nice for coffee or drink. Staff is helpful and atentive. But rooms and especially bathrooms are in desperate need of repairing and also cleaning. With few easy maintenance task this could be the best hotel in Pokhara.
